[VIDEO] Pocket Survival Kit (PSK) – Containers

A Pocket Survival Kit (PSK) should ideally fit in a pocket, but that doesn’t make it impervious to danger and considering the things you’ll be carrying in it and the proximity to the body, moisture becomes a problem right quick.

You don’t want to be caught in a sudden rainshower and see your prepwork wasted and your survival chances diminish over something as mundane as a bout of rain or an accidental fall while on a riverbank.

That’s why Cache Valley Prepper is here to show you everything there is to know about keeping your preps dry and also well-organized.

  • One pretty good way to weatherproof those tins is using pieces of innertube, sometimes people call it “ranger bands” around the opening edges. Lots of folks use them to hold things closed, or together, as do I, but they also do a good job of preventing water from intruding.
    Since there are multiple sizes of bicycle tubes, and even motorcycles that use them, plus truck tires that do, the choices are out there for various sizes.

    Beats trying to use and re-use tapes like duct or electrical, etc. And you can pick how WIDE to cut them, as well.

    Thanks for doing these, there ARE people who know less then you, and less than me, and there are people who know WAY MORE than either of us!
